Into “creature power” at your house? PBS KIDS has just launched an all-new “Wild Kratts” World Adventure App for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, and we think it’s going to be a hit with Kratt fans across the boards. Just in time for Earth Month, World Adventure invites kids to explore animal science and habitats while building key skills and encouraging science inquiry.

Created for kids ages 4 to 8, these three games (with 30 levels total) celebrate creatures from around the globe and help players discover that animals can take them anywhere in science. As they swing with orangutans, jump with dolphins and search for food with woodpeckers, kids will learn and problem-solve as science comes to life. Martin and Chris use these adventures to teach about important concepts such as momentum, navigation and food chains. 

Kids can measure their progress as they complete levels, too! After each level, little adventurers earn creature power “selfies,” habitat stickers and “Wow! Facts” that help further their environmental science and natural history learning.

Chris Kratt, co-creater of the series, had this to say about the new app, “[This] is the ultimate app for “Wild Kratts” fans … [with] all-new, interactive experiences that further kids’ knowledge and passion for animals and the environment. Our goal is to make natural and environmental science fun for young children and to establish that enthusiasm early on.”

So, want to see what all the fuss is about? Find the “Wild Kratts” World Adventure App in the App Store or AppStore.com/PBSKIDS for $2.99, and be sure to tune in for special episodes during Earth Month on AETN!
